PESHAWAR: Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif, responding to President Asif Ali Zardari’s personal remarks against him, said that he still prays for the forgiveness of Zardari’s father.

Addressing a gathering in Peshawar, Sharif said that he even went to the hospital to see Zardari’s father when he was unwell.

Sharif was responding to Zardari’s speech on Thursday where he said that the Sharif brothers did not have enough people to “even offer funeral prayers” of their father and had taken him to Data Darbar because of the number of people present at the shrine.

Zardari continued bashing the PML-N for the second day while Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman sided with the PML-N on Friday requesting the party to not respond to the president’s statements.

Sharif, during his address, counted the inefficiencies of the ruling government and boasted of how his government did well when they were in power.

    Nawaz sharif will answer him with actions after the next elections, he never indulges in verbal warfare with anyone, this is his style.

    What a beautiful thing to say when the other person is abusing your dead father.This shows the strength of character of nawaz sharif that even when the opposite side is ridiculing his father’s last moments nawaz doesn’t stoop to their level.

    Nawaz Sherif – you are part of the game; you are responsible for this mess; you supported Zardari; you are supporting Zardari; you just speak; you have no actions; you go out of the country for a medical checkup whenever there is a crisis in the country (people are dieing of either no medicine or fake medicines); you are promoting and leading family politics; what is your plan? what is your vision?

    Nawaz sharif is a true leader whereas zardari and gillani are the most crupt politicians in the history of Pakistan.because of them ,we are facing lawlessness, inflation,cruption,kidnapping,killing etc. only Nawaz sharif can bring happiness and development in our country whereas PMLQ ,imran khan are just pressure groups like MQM.

    I still pray for his wife (Ms. Benazir) – how did an educated and well-brought up woman stay with him for that long is beyond me?

    Good statesmanship

    I wish Nawaz Sharif had the grace to snub his younger brother for the non-sense he talks about Zardari. One brother bashing Zardari, and when Zardari responds, the other plays the nice guy. Interesting game indeed.

    @Lala Jie: Brother whatever Shahbaz said he wasn’t bashing Zardari’s dead relatives. How would you like it if one of the Sharifs foul mouths Benazir. A person should have some common decency more so if he is the president of the nation. I do not support Nawaz Sharif politically but his reaction to this utter nonsense is commendable.
